Model Lisa Snowdon has admitted that she has ‘great chemistry’ with Strictly Come Dancing partner Brendan Cole.

The pair are set to perform the Cha Cha Cha together in the first live show on Saturday night.

The Capital FM Breakfast Show DJ confessed to the Daily Star: “He’s very sexy. I can see why women find a man who can dance extremely sexy. He’s masculine, dominant and protective of his partners in front of the judges.

“That’s a nice trait. Brendan’s a real man’s man and when you dance with him you feel very feminine.

“We’ve got great chemistry and I am working harder than I’ve ever worked.”

The girls will not compete in the first live show, but will still take the floor and perform a group Cha Cha Cha.

Lisa revealed that she is finding it hard to be ‘sexy’ on the dance floor despite hours of hard work.

“It’s weird because you would think being a model it would come easily. But I can’t open up yet. We’re practising morning, noon and night.

“But the sexy side of things is something you just can’t practice,” Lisa told the newspaper.
